Drift is a smart, handsome, edgy magazine dedicated to coffee culture. Each semi-annual issue focuses on a different city, exploring for each the many ways coffee is enjoyed. This issue journeys to Havana, a vibrant city that has been largely off limits (to Americans, at least). It is a place where the National Museum of Fine Arts contains a sculpture called Le Cafedreal, a cathedral fashioned from battered Moka stovetop coffee pots, ubiquitous in Cuban homes. Gorgeous photography—a hallmark for Drift—helps bring the city to life, as do articles exploring the many styles of Havana coffee, what it's like to shop for food and drink in a rationed economy, the dreams of expats to recreate Cuban coffee on other shores, and the ventanillas, the windows through which countless people sell cups of coffee to passersby to supplement their income. Expertly done!
